Disney Parks Moves Forward with ‘My Disney Experience,’ ‘MyMagic+’

Last year, we reported on several new domain names being registered by The Walt Disney Company which we speculated as being attributed to ventures in place by Disney Parks and Resorts. While these sites continue to remain dormant, Disney Parks recently applied for several trademarks which match up quite nicely with those registered domains as well as some new project names of note.

While all of the trademark applications describe the terms as nothing more than ‘Education and entertainment services,’ their names lend themselves to the looming XPass experience in which certain guests will be able to micromanage their Disney vacations months in advance and the fabled ‘NextGen’ project integrating RFID, customizable wristbands that will help customize and cater to individual guests.

‘Custom Letter Plaques’ by Dave Avanzino to Launch at Disneyland Resort

Custom Letter Plaques by Dave AvanzinoEven if he’s not recognized by name, the most casual of Disney Parks guest is likely to be familiar with the work of ‘multimedia dimensional artist’ Dave Avanzino. Among his prized works include shadowboxed themed signs — such as Disney theme park names or lands — in which the letters are comprised of 3-dimensional paper sculpture ‘objects’ that are related to the theme being spelled out.

Those who attended last year’s Disney D23 Expo may have also met Avanzino himself inside the D23 Dream Store. There, Avanzino was testing out a pilot program in which attendees could commission their own personalized sign and choose from a wide assortment of themed alphabets and mix’n’match for the desired effect.
